Discourse as SSO provider -- dev work

I run an existing community with Discourse, the software that also drives this forum for Mattermost.

Discourse has its own SSO provider method

I would like a Mattermost plugin or integration that will let me limit account creation to Discourse users, and pull the username and perform authentication via the Discourse SSO provider API. I want to keep the entirety of user management in Discourse – I don’t want to have a second app with a separate set of users.

If you would like to do this work, please give me a quote as to how much you’ll charge for it in total.

I am an experienced developer and have worked on some pretty complex plugins in the past and would be glad to help you out.

Did this go anywhere? Getting Mattermost to automatically log in through the Discourse SSO provider would be perfect for us!

Has anyone been able to achieve that? We are using discourse and would love to use the forum as SSO provider for our mattermost chat

It is achievable. You just need to have the right thinks in place.
